A Requiem for Davey Jones...


I have always loved this song as it is one of the greatest psychedelic tunes ever penned (by Gerry Goffin and Carole King) and recorded in my opinion. The Monkees were in a constant struggle to break the mold of their Bubble Gum pop beginnings and this film, Head, was a direct if not bizarre byproduct of that struggle.

The Monkees - The Porpoise Song (the main theme for "Head")

My, my the clock in the sky is pounding away
There's so much to say
A face, a voice, an overdub has no choice
And it cannot rejoice

Wanting to be, to hear and to see
Crying to the sky

But the porpoise is laughing good-bye, good-bye
good-bye, good-bye, good-bye

Good Bye Davey...

The incomparably lovely and incredible wordsmith Ann Magnuson and the talented Mark Kramer of Bongwater left this behind as a great mark of Bongwater's brilliant but seldom noticed career.
